Richard McInnerney is the man behind Wild Atlantic Wood. Wanting to create great looking crafts of a practical nature while keeping to the original form and colour of the wood as possible, imperfections and all, has been the guiding principle of Wild Atlantic Wood.
Living in West Cork Ireland there is a good supply of fallen or cut branches from which to make many of the pieces and so only wood from West Cork on the Wild Atlantic Way is used.
I worked for furniture makers both on the production scale and bespoke one-off pieces as well as on home projects and always wanted to make something in his own workshop and have someone like it enough to want to buy it to have in their home. With this in mind, I started my first stall at a local farmer's market selling handmade crafts. I get great satisfaction when a customer buys something and then return a few months later to say they were still happy with the purchase and often, are using it on a daily basis . The next step was to expand this stall into a small business that I could work from home doing what I enjoy best- thus Wild Atlantic Wood was born.
